Abstract: The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) which is going to be applied in 2015 brings hopes but also challenges. For Indonesians, AEC gives them the opportunity to find a job in other ASEAN countries so that their welfare can potentially be improved. On the other hand, AEC also brings challenges as in Indonesia, Indonesian skilled labor has to compete with skilled labor from other ASEAN countries who come to work in Indonesia. Meanwhile, the competitive ability of Indonesians is questioned. The Indonesian Human Development Index (HDI) has increased in the last 30 years but compared to other ASEAN countries, the rank is still sixth behind Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines. SWCU students who graduate around 2015 will face a different competitive environment. The aim of this paper is to describe students' perceptions on the implementation of AEC. The objective of this research is to know students' knowledge about AEC and its impact as well as their preparations in facing the implementation of AEC. This is a descriptive research, as the data is collected from SWCU students. The data shows that the majority of students do not know about the implementation of AEC or even the concept of AEC. From the data, those who already know about AEC and are aware of the impact of the implementation of AEC are already prepared to face the new competitive environment.
